If your child needs support to be upright, that most likely includes sitting AND standing positions. Both positions are very important for development and overall well-being. If your child uses an adaptive stander for postural support in standing, it is likely that daily standing has been recommended. This can mean heavy lifting when assisting them with a transfer from one piece of adaptive equipment to another. What if therapeutic sitting and standing with appropriate postural support for both could be achieved with the same piece of equipment? Well, it can! That is exactly what sit-to-stand standers provide and more!
Sit-to-stand standers offer appropriate support in sitting and standing. And they support the gradual progression when moving from sitting to standing even if fully upright standing cannot be achieved at first. This is the very definition of progressive weight bearing. EasyStand® brand offers several styles of sit-to-stand standers for young children through adults. They even offer a Mobile Stander for kids and an active Glider for adults. Lots of versatility and lots of options.
Why is Standing Important
Standing is beneficial to your child's development both physically and emotionally. Allowing children with special needs to stand for some portion of the day improves alertness, vocalization and responsiveness while also improving range of motion, circulation, and respiratory function. In fact, very young children require weight bearing through their legs to develop their hip joints. Make it easier with a sit-to-stand stander from Adaptivemall.com. We would be more than happy to provide you with custom advice on which style is most appropriate for your child's size and your specific set of requirements.
